Always fascinated by the summer solstice. Just squeezing this entry in on the shortest night of the year for us here in the northern hemisphere. We had an afternoon reprieve at the Kentville Agricultural Centre. Just a short visit.
Wally comes to the Centre quite often in the early mornings. He wanted me to see- and smell- this exotic, jasmine-scented bush/tree sort of thing we don't know the name of.
The grounds were covered in perfumed flowering bushes
It was quite heavenly and we were all alone
under great tall trees
while below us a great gathering of graduation photo takers
gowned like the flowers they walked among
a joyous celebration of blossomed debutantes
in their brief burst of glory
what fun to see the colourful celebration
on the longest day of the year.
Do you celebrate the summer solstice? I think of my old friend Fran, now 100, who, in winter, could always tell me how many days til spring.
